Hey Alive,

You might want to try this: http://www.aidsmeds.com/lessons/StartHere1.htm . It's a link to the AIDSMEDS lessons for those new to HIV. It explains in plain language how the virus works and what your blood test results mean and so on.

There are also extensive lessons on medications and some of the health problems we HIVer's can face.

Fondly,

MtD

Sorry Alive, I misread your post. I've just gotten out of hospital so I'm a bit confuzzled. ;)

Good numbers though! You've got Hep C too yes? I hope your liver biopsy wasn't too stressful.

Regards,
